Stylistically, The Blitz pretty much picked up where Krokus' breakthrough, Headhunter, left off. But ultimately, it failed to equal its predecessor's platinum sales, grinding to a halt just past gold status. A shambolic cover of the Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz" (which didn't sound all that great in its original version) is especially painful, and tepid rockers like "Out to Lunch" and "Hot Stuff" simply fail to excite…

Reissue label drops ball. Thanks to some significant differences in track selection, Castle's Long Stick Goes Boom: The Anthology isn't quite the equal of Arista's Definitive Collection, released three years prior. During the first half of the '80s, Krokus were semiregular occupants of the lower reaches of the U.S. mainstream rock chart. Since this compilation was released in the U.K., it doesn't emphasize the group's stateside successes, since roughly half of the group's chart entries – including the early singles "Burning Bones" and "Winning Man" – are not included. Another unfortunate thing is that three of the songs – "Long Stick Goes Boom," "Lay Me Down," and "Eat the Rich" – are live performances, which defeats the purpose of having the best representation/introduction possible.

Change of Address is the ninth studio album by the Swiss hard rock band Krokus, and is largely seen to be their least successful. It has been described as "plainly one of the worst efforts" from Krokus, and the band's website claims that they and their musical style were put under too much pressure from their record company. Unsurprisingly, Krokus changed their record label for their next studio album, Heart Attack. Andrew T of N.Y. metal band Blackout filled in for Kohler on select dates during this tour.

It's hard not to pan the stunning averageness of Switzerland's Krokus, one of the more insignificant - yet visually amusing - European contributions to the mid-'80s hard rock landscape. Yeesh! Talk about aging badly. At their best ("Long Stick Goes Boom" and "Eat the Rich"), the group sound like a very poor man's AC/DC; at their worst, their cock-rock posturing simply defies description. OK, so the near-thrash intent of "Headhunter" does manage to evoke the infinitely superior Accept, but there's little else here to even justify the group's existence. In all fairness, there definitely were worse bands than Krokus, but you'd be hard-pressed to find them, and the material here hardly deserves a "best of" tag.

Heart Attack is the tenth studio album by the Swiss hard rock band Krokus, and is described by the band as "the last attempt to keep the band together in a deep crisis"…

Krokus' generic, by-the-numbers approach to '80s hard rock isn't particularly well represented here (the band would reach its apex on 1983's Headhunter), although there are a few good songs – the album's opening and closing tracks, "Burning Bones" and "Celebration," respectively, are its best, and the steely ballad "Winning Man" (later virtually rewritten as "Screaming in the Night") is worthwhile. But stinkers like "Smelly Nelly" are just inexcusable.

Recorded in front of a hometown crowd in Solothurn, Switzerland, Krokus bring the house down on their live album Long Stick Goes Boom: Live from da House of Rust. Playing off the energy of the frenzied crowd, the band delivers an energetic set that'll easily make listeners forget these guys have been at it for nearly 40 years…
